The gold items in Apex Legends give you fantastic abilities to change the odds in your favor, the craziest is the ability to self revive yourself. When you’ve got a gold knockdown shield in your inventory, you can press and hold a button after being knocked out to self revive yourself in Apex Legends.
The gold knockdown shield is a very rare find in the game. If you’re lucky, you’ll find it in high-tier loot areas, else the chances are good you can get the gold knockdown shield in the care packages that drop in from the sky.
How to self revive in Apex Legends
Once you have the gold knockdown shield in your inventory, you can use it to resurrect yourself by holding the key you use to pickup items in the game.
- PC: Press and hold the E button after being knocked out. If you’ve changed your keyboard controls, just know that the key you use to pick up items in the game is the key which you need to press and hold to resurrect yourself.
- Xbox One: Press and hold the X button after being knocked out.
- PS4: Press and hold the Square button after being knocked out.
BIG TIP: When you have a gold knockdown shield, try not to use it to block damage inflicted on you. If the enemy knows you have a gold shield, they will come for you first to stop from resurrecting yourself. Hide away in a spot where the enemy can’t see before reviving yourself.
